{Oreo Week} Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

Yes yes yes… it is true.  It was my husband, Ben’s, idea for this wonderful week of Oreos.  In our house, Oreos are a valuable good.  We don’t always have them in the house but when we do, ALL of my boys will eat ALL of their meals and even lick their plates if they know Oreos are on the menu for dessert.  We don’t need the other flavors, just the original chocolate cookie and vanilla cream. Oh and they MUST be double stuf.  We even have a variety of eating styles.  Ben and Jonah are dunkers, Maddux likes to separate his and eat the cream then the cookie, and I like to just bite mine and then wash it down with ICE COLD milk!  As you can see, we kind of have a system! 

Ben actually prefers just the Oreo.  He has a “Don’t mess with a good thing” policy when it comes to Oreos.  BUT… He loves them in brownies and ice cream and he was a big fan of these cheesecake cookies.  They are soft and cheesecake-y on the inside and have a delightful crumbly oreo outside.  Imagine a cheesecake with an Oreo crust and there you have it.  A wonderful cookie for any Oreo lover!
